Mmmm.... Hopping in the ck macine here I remember that if you POKEd a value greater than 128 or so into one of the Commodore PET's register you would set the oscillator for the video chip above the chips rated capacity and blow out the computer.

Or set up harmonics on RM03 disk drive units. Seeking the heads in and out wouldn't cause the drives to actually walk around on the floor, but they would make a *very* interesting noise for the night op.

It's nice they never included anything like that on modern gear.
